Rejoice, people. We’re about to get lots and lots of Eddie Murphy over the next few years. Netflix was smart enough to give the iconic comedian and actor a similar deal to the one they have in place with Adam Sandler at a reportingly $70 million large. That means more Eddie Murphy comedy specials and more Eddie Murphy movies on the easiest and breeziest streaming service.

First up is an amazingly over-the-top comedy called Dolemite Is My Name, where Murphy plays the titular character based on the real-life comedian-actor-rapper Rudy Ray Moore.

The trailer, which you can check out above, is truly great, and the movie looks like so much fun. It's set to drop sometime this fall.
